O'Halloran running for Fitchburg City Council 'to speak for the people'

Oct 16, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Sentinel & Enterprise

Patrick O'Halloran says he's running again to represent Ward 2 on the City Council because he feels little has changed for the better in the city since his last bid for the seat two years ago.

This O'Halloran clown differs little from that well-known asshat Lynch.

Read this clown's positions then compare with Lynch.

These idiots out here who label people are the real clowns. They all hide behind anonymous names. But I have been noticing a trend with this anti Irish rhetoric.

There is this guy Obrien that hangs out with this bunch also, he must be the butt of their jokes as he giggles along with them as they ridicule his heritage.

Unfortunately this city has a few cowardly ass kissing cliques. These cliques have kept Fitchburg in the dumps as they have done absolutely NOTHING for a better and safer Fitchburg.

Yeah O'Halloran how do you feel about Obrien? Will you support our brother Lynch in his quest to be elected?

What does nationality have to do with ANYTHING? Seriously! So, in Greek concentration areas of Fitchburg they should all vote for their fellow Greek citizens regardless of policy????

Get over this nationality thing as we are a community of many different nationalities/origin.

Enough already as our business tax rate is $27 per thousand! These are the issues which we must discuss not a person heritage!!!

"I'm the "clown" you refer too. Can You dispute anything in the article?"

Certainly! You claim a "voice for common sense" is necessary and you have the required perspective and voice. Okay, a few questions to "dispute" your claim--

1. If, as you claim, more cops must be hired to address an incremental increase in crime, please identify any recognized and widely accepted unbiased study that proves conclusively the hiring of more cops leads to an immediate and measurable decrease in the crime rate.

2. If, as you contend, "the city has to live within its means" and that "taxes have increased," please identify where you propose to obtain the funds to compensate, train and equip these new hires. You have three potential sources: First, raise taxes; Second, transfer the funds from other cash-strapped municipal departments; Third, cut existing municipal spending across the board to pay for the additional cops.

3. You are running for Councilor in Ward 2, which is a ward with colossal problems with vacant derelict housing, slums that should be demolished, a feeling of estrangement and animosity dividing the Hispanic residents from the long-time white/Anglo residents. Yet, you have nothing to say about those pressing problems in Ward 2. How come?

4. Please be specific in identifying which municipal services you believe "are decreasing" and explain your proposal to reverse the trend including how the restored services will be paid for and who will pay.

Let's hear from you on those 4 softballs. Fret not, the remaining 57 questions I have ready for you only get easier.

BTW, best of luck in November.

Let's see what you've got O'Halloran. These aren't questions you should have to do much research on, you should have answers at your fingertips.

Hey O'Halloran, you've had adequate time to respond. Thank you is for showing the voters of Fitchburg that your are yet another empty suit with not clue as to what you're doing. At the very least you've proven that a vote for you is a wasted vote. Standing at an intersection with a campaign sign is so much more important than answering direct and relevant questions.

You'll go down in the annals of Fitchburg along with the pizza shop guy, really Rachel, lynch and now O'Halloran. That's some mighty fine company you're keeping.

Thanks for proving my point O'Halloran. All this time and you've got nothing to say? Afraid to put your thoughts into print? A political newcomer trying to game the constituents? You had one chance to, a very direct opportunity to respond to a reasonable set of questions and you've proven that you don't possess the intestinal fortitude to even run for a Ward seat with conviction.

Spaghetti and meatballs? That's your answer? Tell you what, that evening doesn't work for me, I've got a prior commitment, so please, again, answer the questions in this forum. We know you're checking it, so don't cower.

"It's a pasta party beginning at 5pm and after I will be there to meet people so they can voice their concerns and ask questions."

O'Halloran, earlier in this thread I referred to you as a "clown." Now, you have gone out of your way to prove my characterization of you was correct.

You asked me to dispute anything in the article appearing in the Sentinel, which I did with Questions 1-2-3. The fact you choose not to answer comes as no surprise. After all, admittedly I was correct when referring to you as a "clown," all mouth and no substance, a typical loser attempting to gain advantage playing off the unsubstantiated fears of the fools who buy the crap you are selling.

BTW, here are Questions #5 and #6 for you to ponder:

5. How have you become absolutely certain the slight increase in reported crime is not attributable to manpower assignments or cop deployment as opposed to outright manpower shortages as you contend?

6. Please identify any instance of criminal activity occurring during the last 10 years in Fitchburg where there is conclusive proof a crime would not have been committed if more cops were employed.

Mr Gadbois,

I respect you! We have something in common, the best interest for EVERYONE!

You are correct when you stated in your previous post about a "DEBATE".

You have the chance Tomorrow night, I offered you a ride and you dismissed that.

EVERYONE will have the chance to ask me questions!

One QUESTION for you, who am I running against and what is his platform?

Wow, answering a question with a question.

O'Halloran you're a mental midget and a tool. I'd say good luck with your campaign but it sounds like it's an abortion.
